Victron battery balancer help

Hein the turning on points are not exactly the same, recently installed 3 on my bank, and all three turn on at different voltages a couple of minutes apart, although the fluke reads the same voltage on all three of them. The actual balancing work will only happen at a voltage higher than the turn on voltage, so I don't think you should worry to much about it.

EDIT: I meant. don't  worry to much if for example it only switches on at 27.5Volt. I think if it switches on at 28 or 29Volts, that should be a reason for concern imo.

HTT,

IF the unit is a problem, is that it is still under warranty being Victron.

Warranty is on the device, not the person who bought it.

What I saw on them (balancers are not my interest) is that the panels obviously must be producing, so volts as said is above 27v.

Also of interest is that it is off most of the time with a click and LED flash every now and then daytime.

It only starts doing work at absorption voltages, so I would expect that even if it turns on above 27V it will only start doing real work above 28V.

I'll keep my eye on it, thank you, sir!
